A cold front passed most of the way through the Quad State Region
yesterday morning, bringing in noticeably drier and cooler air
behind it on a west northwesterly breeze. By early afternoon, the
atmosphere became unstable enough for a line of showers and a few
thunderstorms to develop just ahead of the front, mainly in the
Pennyrile region of Kentucky. A few locations received upwards of an
inch of rainfall. Skies were partly cloudy behind the front, but the
convective activity resulted in mostly cloudy skies for much of the
Pennyrile region in the afternoon. As a result, whether it was
because of cooler air moving in, or cloudiness, peak afternoon
temperatures were limited to the lower to middle 80s across the
entire region, except upper 70s near I-64.

It was early evening by the time the last shower moved out of the
southern Pennyrile region. Through the evening, winds turned more to
the north and became light. Temperatures had already dipped into the
middle 60s by midnight, under scattered, mostly high clouds.

The Quad State Region will be under high surface pressure well into
the weekend, with no rain in the forecast, and low humidity. Today`s
highs will be quite cool...mostly in the middle to upper 70s under
partly cloudy skies. A gradual rebound of temperatures can be
expected into the holiday weekend, but they will still be pleasant
for this time of year.

The secondary, reinforcing front was moving through the region
this afternoon, ushering in drier and cooler air behind the
system. By Thursday and Thursday night, highs should top out only
in the upper 70s and low 80s, and lows will be mostly in the upper
50s to low 60s. Expect a continuation of these pleasant conditions
well into the holiday weekend with only a modest rebound in
